Just buy a new motor, you can clean, replace the brush with an rc brush and solder it in, everything will eventually fail, and if you're lucky it'll be in the rain like mine lol. New motor is like 50-80 and install it yourself its easy. Replacement REPN468708 Window Motor | Auto Parts Warehouse
I used that part # and it burnt out 2 months later...
I've read that the regulator has an adjustable guider and I'm betting that it is pushing too hard on the glass, but there is no way to know that is the case, or if I just got a bad motor. I will put in a warranty claim and adjust the regulator guide upon the next install. But after reading all of the "my window's fucked" threads idk what to expect.
When I bought the car the problem was intermittent, I thought no big deal, I can replace a window motor (I'm a motorcycle mechanic) but the intermittent problems came back shortly after replacement, and to say the least I am a bit wary of a new motor alone doing any better...
If anyone has had similar issues I'm open to suggestions.
Sporadic auto-down after auto up function.
Slow upward movement.
Down all the way - no back up unless panel removed and I assist with a pull.
Now it's fully non-functional just like the last motor. Something wonky with the regulator? Switch is clicking and doing it's thing but I've got no movement at all anymore.
After owning my 03 Z for 13 years(95k miles) ,I have just started to have the dreaded window problems(driver's side only). Basically,at times it gets stuck,
refusing to go up. Researching this problem on the forums,I took the advice of
beating on the inside door panel while holding the switch down.
However,recently the window will not fully close the last inch or so when you close the door. Funny thing,the weather got cooler,it now closes all the way.
I've noted the expansion and contraction issues with this and various switches due to the change of outside temperatures.
Relating to this,I had some issues with seat controls not working.
Heating with a hairdryer fix them.
Just better quality parts needed in the original car.
I'm just putting up with the window problem for the time being.
Being in the south,I hardly roll down the window anyhow. Its A/C or nothing.
Furthermore,hate to take the door apart and possibly get some rattles
that were not there after reassembly.
